New Horizons

The New Horizons is a space probe launched on January 19, 2006. It is the fastest space craft ever launched. The New Horizons is the closest manmade object to Pluto! You can get new and closer pictures of Pluto from it. Its mission is to keep on going past Pluto to the Kuiper Belt and see the objects around it!

My debate on Pluto

I think Pluto should stay a dwarf planet because then all of the other planets that go outside of the Kuiper Belt will have to be considered a planet, too!
